some questions about natural dreads

I decided that this year I would stop fighting with my hair and let it do its thing. Less than 3 weeks in and I have a few clumps that resemble dreadlocks and a lot of loose messy hair. I've been wearing it in a loose bun, but that's creating a giant knot in the back of my head.

Is it a bad idea to wear my hair like this? I really can't think of anything else to do with it right now. I usually wore it like this before I started growing dreads just because my hair is so unmanageable. When I'm not out in public, i wear it down or tucked up into a hat so it's not like that all the time. It's going to be a long time before my hair looks decent, so I need to figure out a good way to wear it in the meantime.

I do want big, uneven dreads, but not one giant one. Should I wait until whatever's going on on the back of my head forms and try to pull it apart or should I be doing something now?
